OPenGL is not Working

Post by leegold » Wed Aug 13, 2014 8:06 pm

Hi,

$ uname -a
FreeBSD freebsd-963 9.2-RELEASE FreeBSD 9.2-RELEASE #0: Mon Oct 21 21:22:37 ADT 2013 root@ericbsd.ghostbsd.org:/usr/obj/i386.i386/usr/src/sys/GHOSTBSD i386

I have an nvidia card.

Code: Select all

$ kldstat
Id Refs Address    Size     Name
 1   21 0xc0400000 106bbbc  kernel
 2    1 0xc146c000 755fa8   nvidia.ko
 3    2 0xc1bc2000 32150    linux.ko
 4    1 0xc7cf3000 2b000    vboxguest.ko
 5    1 0xc7d25000 2000     vboxvideo.ko
 6    1 0xc7d27000 16000    drm.ko
 7    1 0xc86a2000 b000     ntfs.ko
I noted that none of the OpenGL screensavers work. They run in Linux...Isn't OpenGl the 3-D capability? It's not essential but it would be interesting to know why it's not working.

Possibly related is when I run nvidia-settings I get:

Code: Select all

$ nvidia-settings

ERROR: libGL setup error : Shared object "libm.so.3" not found, required by
       "libGL.so.1"
and then nvidia-settings opens, when I look at "OpenGL/GLX Info in nvidia-settings GUI there's no info just says: Failed to query the GLX server vendor.

Is there a fix? I looked at xorg.config and it seems OK(?):

Code: Select all

[user1@freebsd-963 /usr/home/user1]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig

I notice that the BoardName & BusID are commented out, have you tried uncommenting them to see what happens?

Code: Select all

# BoardName      "NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]"
    # BusID          "PCI:1:5:0"
